    Lap Band Removal

    I think I was going through the same thing you are going through, the acid was sooooo bad i was throwing up in my sleep and i just kept coughing like I was sick. I had to sleep sitting up or i would choke. I'm taking Phentermine and i can said it does help me. I was banded in 2012 lost about 70 pounds. I'm good with weight now at 150 pounds I just hope to stay here. I'm 46. When the band was removed in the bed next to me was a lady who had the sleeve and i dont understand how but i overheard she had a leakage and need surgery too

    Lap Band Removal

    Thank you for your respond, Within 2 days of the removal im feeling 150% better, but I do feel hungry when i went back to see the doctor and i told him my feeling he gave me a pill so to control my hunger which is working, but i have not gotten on the scale. When i do eat i just make believe i still have the band. Keep me posted on your removal. What is your situation if you don't mind me asking.
